7.0 - Went to bed on a 5.9. Same old..... same old...... yawn.
5.2 could be due to a fair amount of strenuous exercise yesterday, or a fair amount of wine.
Beautiful day here again, hope you all have similar.
After a considerable absence I am back in The Famous Five! 5.7, I’ll take it.
Have a great Sunday all.
5.2 today and my hba1c last week was 40 so all good
6.1 for me
Well done, great control Andy.
5.9 this morning.
Yay for fabulous five @PenguinMum. Even louder yay for HbA1c @Andydragon. 2nd woot for @Pasha and excellent reaction to more carbs. Potentially true 4.4 on Swipey @ 6.51 a.m - not sure how I slept that late. @DJC3 , see A1c fine. Contrary to the "arbitrary figure", AFAIC, like exam passes, that number is all the external verification I/we have to show any of this works. Stabbo and Swipey no better than my Gold Medal for Womem's Pole Vault to the outside world.
5.5 for me on this bright Somerset morning
I feel your pain. Several years of waking up with higher numbers in the morning than I went to bed with the previous night got very wearing at times.
3.8 this morning, I was woken by my low glucose alarm - an entirely new experience. Quickly dealt with that with a few raisins before getting the morning insulin on board. Hope everyone has a good Sunday. Exam tomorrow so guess what I will be doing?
Hug for Hypo on such an important day. I'm sure you'll breeze through the exam.
6.1 today. So some improvement.
@ziggy_w , I think the soap substitute cream I have to use when my skin is dry, could be the reason for higher numbers. So Didn’t use it today before test. Thank you for your concern and suggestion.
6.5 at 6AM and 6.0 just now at 09.10AM. These are good numbers considering it was eating day yesterday. I am cautiously optimistic that it will come down while i fast today.
Its bright and sunny outside. I hope you all have a lovely day.
Lovely sun this moring, gardening.
Do you think that you do too much fasting and that maybe your body is trying to compensate in some way ? If I don't eat when I get up my numbers rise until I do maybe due to stored glucose ? Its a very complex condition this diabetes that's for sure
8.8 this am I think due to small takeaway ( fish and quite a few chips ) I am trying to keep to 100gr of carbs a day but failed yesterday . Still today is another day as they ( whoever they are ) say .
It has crossed my mind but the pertinent question then becomes if I am not giving the body any known raw material to make glucose where is it getting it from and answer can only be - from existing reserves - which is good even if it means rising BG as that means we are forcing body to deplete those sources as best as we can. In my case I do not believe that my body is now a hoarder of such reserves so it becomes a cause of concern and i will explain my reasoning below.
Now what I also understand from past few months of reading and observing extended fasts is that this occurrence of higher readings is most definitely due to body trying to combat what it perceives as threat...
I have been comparing my BG highs with pollen counts and it seems to shed some light as I can see a direct correlation of high pollen count periods showing high BG... that may not be true for others but my body for whatever reasons seems to perceive pollen as threat which is quite possibly the root cause of higher reading even during fasting state.
Nothing much I can do about it though so I just have to ride it out while continuing with what seems to be a working formula under normal times. However, as these high pollen count days are not normal times. So combining this with my belief that I do not think there are enough reserves to continue producing high amount of glucose, I think you are right that i should therefore provide food if its because of such a scenario... which is why when I eat i modify my intake to ensure enough protein is in my diet allowing for creation of BG even if it's for a fake threat model my body has decided to save me from.
@ziggy_w great FBSs by the way! I am 61 and had my first covid jab in Feb the same time as my OH who is 64 and has health issues - so a lot earlier than our corresponding age group! The only reason I can think that I got it early was due to my T2 even though I have had a non-diabetic hba1c for approx 8 years as my only other health issues are hypothyroidism and high BP albeit now normal due to meds so I image you should have got one as well. Are you invited to have a flu jab each year as that may have a bearing when they trawled through the records? It would be interesting to see if you do get a response.
